E220 Patch & WifI
« on: April 07, 2009, 08:55:28 PM »
I was gonna buy a E220 and was about to borrow a mates for testing, I installed the drivers and Rebooted.

Because I didn't have the E220 to hand, so I tried to surf using wifi.

The wifi device was not recognized.

Maybe some more recent files are being overwritten by this patch.
it seems strange that it knocks out Wifi.

This is the file list taken from the CnM website
http://194.150.201.35/cnmlifestyle/downloads/E220-R3-1201(20080825).info

Does anyone know what the Core Requirements are for GPRS Dongles?  I can then package it up once tested and share ;) :)

I've got a feeling the problem is with the file etc/init.d/modules

The above file contains a list of modules to be loaded into the kernel. I think the wi-fi module is not being loaded into the kernel as it is not in the list.  If you compare the one that comes with 3MX and the one in the E220 patch, hopefully this should tell you which module the wifi one is.

Once identified, it should be just a case of copying the module into the E220 patch and it should work. It should work unless there was a reason for the wifi module to be left out  maybe due to conflict issues?

This patch has been in 3MX since rc1. Don't reinstall it. By doing so you are actually downgrading a few files, which is probably the reason why it knocks out the wireless. There should be no need to install any patches. They are already in 3MX (all versions).

Cheers.
